“There’s a lot of hard work involved, but keep your head down and study and you will really enjoy the results”

Why did you decide to do this Apprenticeship? 

To improve my knowledge of horticulture and give myself better career opportunities.

Tell us about a recent day at work

A wet, cold, windy day cutting hedges and dragging all the brash into one area to shred on a different day. Turned into a very good day at work!

What’s an interesting fact you’ve learned during your Apprenticeship so far?

I learned more plants and shrub names than I thought I would.

What are the best things about being an Apprentice?

One of the best things is learning new things, and I can’t think of anything bad!

Why would you recommend people take up an Apprenticeship with idverde? 

I would recommend it because you gain a vast knowledge about horticulture that can be used to improve your ability.

What advice would you give to anyone considering doing an Apprenticeship?

There’s a lot of hard work involved, but keep your head down and study and you will really enjoy the results.

Where would you like to be in five years?

I would really like to be moving up the ladder in the horticulture industry.

What does Liam’s tutor say?

Liam has been a really great learner. He has always shown great interest and I expect him to do really well on his course completion. His assignments are a pleasure to read and mark.

Thanks for sharing your experiences with us, Liam
